In the local store yesterday I noticed an extraordinary sight – they were almost completely out of bananas. In fact such was the sense of devastation at the banana selling point that it looked as if it had been ransacked by hungry monkeys…
They came running in at half past five,
At the store near Railway Drive
Rushed around the shop like hungry piranhas
Emptied the display of fair-trade bananas!
When the manager tried to intervene
They called him names quite obscene!
The local paper never slow to press
